My studio is organized and cleaned. There is still some fabric to be rolled onto cardboard but everything else is finished. I am even getting a quilt loaded onto my frame. I am looking forward to seeing how the new rods work on the carriage. The test drive was really smooth so hoping I can start doing some more intricate free motion.
Now for some news: Starting next week, I am going to be giving you the steps needed to make the quilt I did for my Blog Hop post. I will give you the fabric amounts needed at the beginning of the week and then will add cutting instructions etc. I hope you will enjoy the pattern. It isn't difficult but fabric choice will determine how it looks when it is finished. I suggest that, over the weekend, you start pulling out some half metre/yard pieces of fabric that blend well together with only one or two that provide contras. Here is a repeat of the close up I posted on Wednesday to give you some ideas. Take another look at the whole quilt to see how the various colours work with each other.
